Terrine in French is a jellied dish. It's usually made of meat or seafood but today I made it exclusively vegetarian as an opportunity to experiment with the Redwood Hill Farm and Green Valley Organics products I recently received. Several of the people in my family are lactose-intolerant, so the combination of goat dairy products from Redwood Hill Farm and lactose-free cow dairy products is a real blessing. But the kefir, sour cream and yogurts are not just serviceable substitutions; these are some of the best dairy products I've ever used.
I created 3 layers respectively made with black beans and raw goat milk feta cheese, artichoke pesto; and sun-dried tomatoes and goat milk Cheddar cheese. I used agar agar, a seaweed substitute for gelatin, so the terrine would keep its shape together. To complete the dish, I drizzled it with tamarind chutney. Needless to say I've had a blast cooking with and tasting the products, and if you're lucky enough to win, you will too!

PPS: I have one other announcement to make today and it's that my husband Lulu and I welcomed our first child into the world recently. She's a very healthy little girl and she's quite a handful. The folks at Redwood Hill Farms were so sweet to send me a tee-shirt for her to wear, and I thought I'd share the picture with you. She will definitely be a Redwood Hill Farm kid. Merry Christmas everyone! Full Recipe...
